A new exhibit is set to hit the Art Gallery of Mississauga next week.

The exhibit, called The Further Apart Things Seem, will be on display as of Feb. 7 and will explore the possibility of finding common ground in a social and political moment where opinions are divisive.

The exhibition is set to feature works by artists who are “pursuing subtle forms of resistance and testing the unexpected to build resilience, resolution, and understanding.”

These artists include Atanas Bozdarov, Anna Binta Diallo, Barbara Hobot, Adriana Kuiper and Ryan Suter, Brendan Lee Satish Tang and Couzyn van Heuvelen.

“In a time where debates over human rights, climate change, land claims, and even the politicizing of the pandemic often seem at cross-purposes and irresolvable, the possibility of finding common ground can seem beyond reach,” said the Art Gallery of Mississauga in a release.

The Further Apart Things Seem invites audiences to consider how we respond in times of uncertainty—when do we push forward, when do we give up, and when do we try things differently?”

The exhibition is being co-presented by Contemporary Calgary, the University of Waterloo Art Gallery, and the Art Gallery of Mississauga and is being supported by the City of Mississauga, the Ontario Arts Council, the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Trillium Foundation.

The exhibit will be on display until Apr. 6, 2023.
